London update the Seventh

Yesterday:
train to Victoria Station, underground to St. Paul's cathedral. Pottered about there a bit, then crossed the millennium bridge to Shakespeare's Globe.
Hung about watching a technical rehearsal of Troilus & Cressida for a bit, then back across the bridge. Along the embankment a ways, then up to Fleet. Didn't find a meatpie for sale, doubled back, followed Cannon Street. Didn't find the London Stone, doubled back to a 'traditional Irish' pub (it's part of a chain), had a meat pie there, as well as some guinness. Out to the Tower of London, back along the Embankment all the way past Cleopatra's Needle (and it was raining so I couldn't get a good shot of it), parked my butt in the pub at Victoria station to kill time. Also, a full month's worth of rain fell yesterday.
Total mileage walked: About 5.5
Got back to the house, watched the first half of the new Torchwood episode, and passed out before the second half started.

Today:
got up (still on the couch!), not very achey (which, considering all I was lugging with me yesterday, , was impressive!). Finished off the Torchwood ep, had breakfast, and made plans to go see the salvage from the Mary Rose that's on exhibit in South Croydon.

Tomorrow: Get up early, trundle off to the train, in to Victoria, then up to King's Cross, from whence I depart to Edinburgh. See what's to see there, then spending the night there w/ doroc_sabah and his mum, then heading back up to London Fri evening.

    I do. However, I think the answer to making this happen is roughly my approach to encouraging it: simply not voicing the racist bullshit that you…
